Question

Google Instant unavailable

I am using a Dell Laptop Windows 8.1. with Internet Explorer as my browser. Under my Google search bar on my home page are the words (Google Instant is unavailable). I have not been able to find out why. When I type in the search bar it moves from the center of the page to the upper left corner and does not show suggested options or underline mispelled words. if I go to Google Chrome Google Instant works perfectly. While searching for an answer I read that Google Instant will not work with some systems and Google is working to correct it. Is my Windows 8.1 using Internet Explorer one of the ones that it wont work on? If not how do I fix this problem?

It may not work on all systems. Given what folk have today one Windows PC is rarely like the next. I would be guessing what antivirus you have but it's been the cause many times.

To google search setting and click " never show instant results."! Google instant search should work after that!
